David said: "It's a great honour to receive this vote of confidence from fellow-Conservatives and I'm thrilled and delighted to be chosen. The next six months promises to be busy and exhilarating, and I'm really looking forward to the campaign."
"As I promised at the meeting, I intend to consult widely with Surrey resident, to find out what they want from their police force and how they see the Police and Crime Commissioner playhing his part in this vital and demanding role. But the main theme I think is already emerging: how best to make a good police force even better so that it can maintain and improve its services to Surrey residents and businesses amidst the undoubted challenges of the present and the future."

He added: "I will continue to serve residents in South Farnham as I have done for 20 yeras, but will scale back my central county hall posts in order to devote as much time as is required fo the PCC campaign. If elected I will resign as a Councillor as I firmly believe that being Surrey's PCC is a full time job."
